One King West/Arlington Estate Wedding

Not everyone gets to have a view of the CN Tower and the rest of the Toronto skyline at their wedding. So I guess you could say that Joscelyn and Daniel aren’t just everyone! From the roof of the Thompson Hotel, right on the corner of Bathurst and Wellington, the attendees could see the beautiful view just passed the beautiful bride. Rooftop weddings aren’t that common, but they certainly should be!

If the view wasn’t enough to sell you on the idea, after the serene ceremony, the rooftop bar was opened for a short cocktail hour by the pool. Nothing quite makes a day like seeing your friends get married, sipping a drink, and dangling your feet in cold water under a hot sun.

After this pleasant pause, the bridal party made a quick stop over at One King West. Originally completed in 1914 then built upon in 2006, the former bank turned condo hotel is the perfect place for a quick stop over for the ideal bridal party photos. Good luck finding better natural light and classier interior architecture. The hybrid ancient Greek and city modern styling tells a story about the past and future, which is the story the bride and groom will tell when they look back on their special day.

No trip to 1 king West would be complete without a visit to the vault. A left over piece of the building’s history as a bank, the massive immovable door stands open now, making for great photo ops with a 1920s heist feel. Think Bonnie and Clyde on their wedding day!

After that brief excursion that great piece of Torontonian history, the party made its moved to its final destination, Arlington Estate. Completed just the summer of 2017, this is surely to be one of the new hotspots for weddings. Located just North West of Toronto, Kleinburg, the beautiful venue features massive banquet halls, and a large green field in the back which is equipped with its own pergola so you’ll never be without a wedding arch. That’s not even the best part, I was going to cite the great parking or the authentic wood-fired pizza ovens, but I’m a sucker for a beautiful pond! A pong right behind the pergola, with the CN Tower, that makes a second thing that not everyone gets to have at their wedding. A third is on its way, and trust me, this one takes the cake, so keep reading! Spoiler alert, it’s not the cake, though that was great too.

After their beautiful reception, full of tear jerking speeches, slideshows of the couple throughout their relationship, and a truly moving same-day-edit video made by our own videographer, then came the big surprise. At the end of the night the couple requested the entire party out onto the balcony overlooking the field, for what they had been led to believe was a massive group photo. Don’t worry, we got a few of those too, but that wasn’t the surprise.

The final surprise, the cherry on the sundae, that third amazing thing that not everyone gets but everyone would love to have at their wedding: Fireworks! This Arlington Estate wedding is one to be remembered!
